Metacritic Score

    Los Angeles Times Manohla Dargis

    Looney Tunes doesn't have much on its addled mind other than pure entertainment, and on this level it succeeds quite nicely.

    The New York Times Stephen Holden

    If the movie has loads of nerve, its ambitious fusion of cartoons and live-action comedy is only fitfully amusing.

  • 50

    Variety

    A not-inventive-enough romp that belches out gags at a rapid-fire clip but connects so sporadically as to leave the audience enervated but only sparingly entertained.
